Poetry Friday

I've chosen summer fun over Poetry Friday the last few months (sorry, buddy!), but I'm ready to get back into the Poetry Friday schedule!
I have an original poem by Kelly Polark today. The title is "Dad And Me," and it is in this month's issue of Stories for Children magazine. This isn't really about my dad and me. (But my dad is awesome!)

Read my poem here!

Kyle has this week's Poetry Roundup at The Boy Reader!

Great poem, and the dad sounds like an excellent dad (even if he isn't your dad).

Cute poem! Good to hear that you and your father have such a great relationship.

Rena said...

That's cute, Kelly! Congrats!

Love the poem. Much better than "Dad and me, we like to fight. We fight and fight most every night."

Cause that would be a downer.

What a neat poem! I love what it says as well as the phrasing. Would that all fathers and children enjoyed each other's company.

Congrats, Kelly! You must be so happy!

Cute poem, Kelly--congratulations!

I love the disclaimer. Whenever I share original poems, someone (or lots of someones) assume they're really about me because I write poetry in first person, usually. But they're usually not. They're just another form of my jumping into someone else's head and experiences.

Thanks for sharing your poem!
